During the national anthem at the Nets game, the singer who was performing took a knee at the end. According to the Associated Press, the crowd reaction was a mix of boos and cheers at the response. The NBA recently put out a memo to teams reminding them that there is a rule for players and coaches to stand during the anthem. The Nets put out a statement following the game that they were unaware the anthem performer was going to take a knee. "We recognize that tonight's national anthem singer kneeled briefly at the end of her performance and we were not aware that she was going to do so," a Nets spokeswoman said. The anthem performer was Justine Skye, a recording artist for Roc Nation, which was founded by former Nets minority owner Jay Z.
